COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers- especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs- we’ve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. We’ve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you’re getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn’t randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, we’ve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

Enjoy by 10.25.13 bomber, poured into Stone shaker glass. Golden straw color with thin white head. Aroma is all hops with a lot of citrus and floral notes as well as some resinous hop notes. Flavor is similar with a lot of hop character from sweet citrusy notes to sticky resinous flavors as well as some pine and spicy notes as well. Medium bodied with slightly sticky mouthfeel and less astringency than I expected. Drinks pretty easy for the ABV. One of the best IPA’s/IIPA’s I’ve had in quite a while.

What a great IPA. The idea works in execution. Super floral citrus pine aroma leads to aggressive but well balanced IPA. Very clean despite its youth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First impression: Wow! Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Huge aroma of citrus floral and pine. Excellent nose. Taste is similar to the nose with robust citrus and floral bitterness mixed with a mild caramel sweetness. It's all about the bitterness here though. Medium bodied with some nice stickiness to the palate. One of the best IPAs I've had. Well done guys! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma- Super fresh, full blown pine, citrus and grass. Appearance- Clear Deep Golden Color with full white head. Taste- Very bitter in all the right ways. earthy, piney, and maybe a little caramel. Palate- Medium bodied, oily texture, and a decent bitter finish. Overall- Very impressive, as long as you can get it fresh, this thing is a beast that can stand toe to toe with many world class IPAs.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 Enjoy By 11-12-13. Incredible citrus aroma - probably the best nose of any beer I’ve ever had. The flavor is similar - very fresh, citrusy, and not too bitter. There’s a hint of malty sweetness for balance, but that isn’t what you’ll remember. I love the concept behind this beer, and it was executed brilliantly. Enjoy By 12-26-14: This one has more spruce and pine, with less citrus and not as much floral aroma. I liked the previous one more, but still an outstanding beer.

Enjoy By 10-25-13. Pours a semi-clear yellowish golden orange with a nice head. Nose is deep citrus with a predominance of grapefruit with some peach as well. Taste is bittersweet with deep and bold citrus flavors. Finish is bittersweet as well with the same bold citrus notes and some pine. Moderately long finish. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Enjoy by 10.25.13. Pours a golden orange with a white head and aroma of grapefruit and hops. Taste is bitter sweet, bitter hops, citrus, grapefruit, caramel and resin with a dry, heavy bitter finish. Nice DIPA

Bottle. Opened 2 days before "drink by" date. Clear dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Initially upon opening, there is a nice hop aroma, but it attenuates slight soon thereafter. Big malt profile that overpowers the hops. No doubt that this is a double. Some apricot in the nose, but mostly hops and malt. The flavor is good, but the bitterness is a little harsh. Palate is perfect for a double. Medium carbonation that rapidly dissipates. It’s a big beer. Well done, but a little heavy-handed. I like what Stone is trying to do here. I just prefer an IPA with a bit more balance.
